Texas Men, Virginia Women Remain On Top Of CSCAA DI Polls

The Texas men’s swim team and the Virginia women’s swim team remain on top of the College Swim Coaches Association of America after all of the mid-season invites.

Distance swimmers and 2015 NCAA Champions Clark Smith (Texas) and Leah Smith (UVA) led their teams through their mid-season invites with several insane swims. Both Clark Smith and Leah Smith posted nation leading times in the 500 freestyle, 1000 freestyle, and the 1650 freestyle. They are also both ranked in the top 5 nationally in the 200 freestyle. Additionally, Clark broke the American, NCAA, and US Open record in the men’s 1000 freestyle with his incredible time of 8:33.93.

The Louisville Men made the biggest leap into the top ten on the men’s side, improving three spots from 10th to 7th. On the women’s side, USC made the biggest improvement from 13th to 4th in the country after a strong mid-season showing at the Texas Invitational.

Would like to see a new power rankings now that all of the mid season rest meets are done

Clark Smith did not post the leading 1650 time in the country.

Not sure I understand how Penn Men are ranked above Princeton considering they lost to Princeton in November. Granted, it’s only one spot difference and lower in the rankings but still…seems a bit odd.

IVYFAN- these don’t appear to be dual meet rankings. Its end of season ones… So a team with a ton of depth and lacking top end swimmers may win dual meets, but not make a splash (pun intended) come championship season. Whereas teams with studs for relays will rank higher come end of season.

B1GSWAMFAN – The CSCAA’s are actually specifically supposed to be dual meet rankings, as compared to SwimSwam’s power rankings, which is more focused on NCAA success.
